How nice, know we can enjoy the blue screen of death on the ps3. Is there really someone who want windows on the ps3 ?!?!?

Juevani : If I see a news that goes "PS3 can reheat your grillcheese!" will you post it ? Because you usually stop reading after "ps3" and post it anyway...

Juevani6396d ago

why?? are you jalouse cus ps3 can run everything and your green xpired box cant? these news just show us what kinda technology Sony is selling us for just 599 bux and no hiden fees ;) you pay 900 bux for a sh1tty console that dont do anything but brick and let you voice chat with 10 years old kids wanna be rambo on fps. dude get outta here your just makin a fool outta ur self.

wolfgang6395d ago

900 $ for a console ? That a ripoff, you should try buying your console in a store instead of ebay, way cheaper. Its also nice to see that you enjoy so Microsoft product that you are dying to install it to your "yet to be acquire Ps3". I always knew you were a MS Bithch Juevani.

wolfgang6395d ago

By the way, I don't know why you talk about my box because I own all three console, and that include... c'mon you can do it... start with a Ps... yes a PS3 (wow, you finally got it). So yes if the ps3 can do that I can do it because I own it. Jealous ? Probalby because I know you don't own one, or else you wouldn't be so much full of BS.

I actually paid £280 for my 360 and another £40 on GRAW. If you can do maths than you will find out that it comes out at £320. Juevani, could you please tell me why i would want to install any OS on the PS3 when i would rather play games, is the PS3 trying to be a computer?

Also, Xbox Live is better than the PSN which i really don't mind paying for, if you can't afford paying £40 a year or £2.50 a month then you must be very poor. Have fun using Blu-Ray which could turn out to be the next betamax, haha goodbye and have fun playing the only good game on the PS3 that being Motorstorm.

gta_cb6396d ago

i agree with you mate, i have an XBox360 Premium and i love it, i only have 8 games at the moment, but thats way more then the total amount of good PS3 games out at the moment hehe!
also XBox Live is amazing, and i dont live in the USA so i dont even have access to the movie download section yet, also just wanted to ask, does anyone know of when the download movies section on XBoxLive is going to be open to other places in Europe?

Juevani you will probadly say what all other Sony fanboys say, something like why pay when you can get it for free, but seriously XBoxLive is amazing, and i would pay much more then £40 a YEAR! which is nothing if you think about games on PC, like World of Warcraft, which you have to pay monthly, plus you have to buy the game, yet there are SOOOOO many online members of that game!

Far Cry Has Become A Shadow Of Its Former Self

Following a series of repetitive games, a formulaic approach, and a disappointing last entry, the Far Cry series has been run into the ground.

The trouble with most criticisms of this franchise is that they insist Far Cry 3 was the best game, but the things they claim to hate about the franchise are all the elements that 3 introduced.

Deeeeznuuuts1d 12h ago

Couldn't agree with you more! I've always thought that, my personal favourite is two, the whole atmosphere, mystery, adrenaline, my vehicle steaming up because I've crashed too many times trying to escape and then getting in a shootout, having to pull a bullet out my arm while fire rages and bullets fly, can't beat it

JEECE1d 12h ago

Yep, 2 is my favorite by far as well, and one of my favorite singleplayer games of all time. It was probably one of the last games Ubisoft made before they started homogenizing their franchises to be open world collect-a-thons with unnecessary RPG mechanics tacked on. I enjoyed 3 for what it was, but it was clearly an attempt to make the franchise appeal to a mass audience (which, in fairness, was successful).

LucasRuinedChildhood1d 10h ago

That's not the issue. If Far Cry 3 never existed and they just made another 5 or 6 games that were increasingly generic copies of Far Cry 2 instead, would that make FC2 the real problem?

No. It's the lack of creativity and effort that followed that's the real issue.

And there are things that are genuinely different about FC3. Simple example - the story was easily the best. Best main villain by far too but it also has strong themes and wasn't afraid to explore controversial topics. The sequels are much blander.

Comparing the fun and creativity of Blood Dragon to the DLC in the sequels ... also says a lot about how Ubisoft fell off.

-Foxtrot1d 7h ago

Yeah like even Far Cry 4 was decent, not as great as FC3 but they still gave us an interesting story, setting and villain. Pagan Min's random calls to Ajay were pretty funny.

They just got lazier and lazier, pumping them out while making it a little more streamlined each time. I mean Jesus, they gave us a silent protagonist with FC5 which really hurt the main story and are obsessed with pleasing everyone by trying to do two characters, male and female rather than just settling on one to tell the best story they can.

neutralgamer19921d 2h ago

I started FC6 and yes the game works fine but I just wssnt Fun. Do many Ubi games are huge playgrounds but feel empty and doesn't give the feeling of a world which is lived in

JEECE13h ago

I have found that the more recent FC games work better as what I call "background games." Basically what I mean is it's nice to have an active save in one of them going for those times you have 45 minutes to play games and just want to have fun and don't want to get bogged down playing a game online or starting a new game and spending all your time into an annoying tutorial. Like I haven't touched FC4 in years but I know if I had 30 minutes to an hour to play I could hop in and easily be back in the swing of things and attack an outpost and have a good time.

I think a lot of people use big RPGs like Skyrim or Cyberpunk in a similar way.

isarai1d ago

Yes because FC3 executed those aspects better. Every game since FC3 has just been Frankensteined off the bones of FC3 with half the effort.

you could say it's a far cry from what it was

wesnytsfs1d 12h ago

Ubisoft gets a lot of hate for their content filling of maps. Personally I enjoy the mechanic when i play an open world game I like revealing hte entire map and doing all the side mission stuff before i go into main missions. Far Cry and the RPG AC maps where a joy to play.

RaidenBlack1d 10h ago

Far Cry 2 was soo unique ... it was ahead of its time and is often misunderstood (thank you Clint Hocking, can't wait for his next game Assassins Creed Hexe)
(yes, FC2 was a departure from from FC1, so in strictest sense, Crysis 1 & 3 are the truer successors)

JEECE1d 9h ago

Yep. Unfortunately there has been so little since then that has scratched the same itch. Really the closest thing has been BOTW, which uses a lot of similar systems (though ironically FC2 came out before Ubisoft put the Assassin's Creed towers in Far Cry, while BOTW had Ubi towers). Obviously it isn't a shooter though. I keep hoping that that some indie dev will put an FC2-esque game out on Steam, but so far I've been left wanting.

Sircolby451d 9h ago

I actually enjoyed Far Cry 5 and New Dawn. Far Cry 6 was a joke. It was a step backwards in every way. That was probably the worst Far Cry I have ever played.
